You might want to look into a "Fiance"category visa under the family migration stream. This allows her to enter the country and remain for a period of 9 months during which time you must get married.

If you do just decide to get her over on an ETA - be aware that just having a marriage certificate will not guarantee your wife permanent residecy. Friends of mine (aussie citizens) that married foreigners prior to trying to get them to OZ still had problems with immigration and had to go through interviews etc....

I would strongly urge you to do some research (go to the dept of immigration web site and get the official brochures and application forms for "Partner"migration) before going through with all of this. As it really is a minefield, and at least you will be prepared. Trust me, you wont get any sympathy from Immigration if you dont go throught the correct procedures and channels
